How to change the size of the strap?


I don't know for the swatch specifically but all watches are roughly the same beast. If you look at the side you will notice small pins on the band. With a very small jewelers screw driver and some light tapping you can pop the pins out. The end connections near the watch and then on the clasp side are usually spring loaded which can be removed with a tiny flat blade as well. Just tap out the pins and keep track of them, you will need to tap them back in once you have removed the extra link to make this smaller.

I have a swiss legend keramica and i cant ajust the bracelet


Most bracelet adjustments require a special tool that is only found in a jewelry store, or your watch can be shortened by the manufacturer. Many watches have pins that push out if you look on the back of the band there should be arrows the pins push in that direction if you have something small enough to fit it the hole, be very careful to put the pin back in the same way. Occasionally some watch bands are not pins they are screws and it can be very difficult to tell the difference between the two. If the watch band has a screw it requires a very small screwdriver and you must be careful NOT to strip the screwhead! You can also shorten some watches by just moving the pin in the band buckle if you have a small tool you should be able to do this yourself, BUT wear glasses because pins will spring out, keep pointed away from your face. Hope this helps!

Dear Sir, I have one of the above Omega Seamasters which was bought in June 2007. Since then the bracelet has fallen apart 4 times now and Swatch want me to pay for a new one. Is this normal for a bracelet...


Hi dunphysteven

It is not normal that the bracelet falls so often.
There seems to be an issue with the product. However the warranty period in most cases is limited to 2-3 years, which unfortunately has crossed in your case.
Therefore in this case u need to pay for the bracelet.

Alternatively you can sell your watch on ebay or some other similar site with the mention that bracelet is an issue.

Hope this helps you.

Regards

How do I remove links from a Seiko watch band?


Follow these steps and it will help u resize your watch.
1-Take a good look at the watch bracelet. Seiko watch bands are equipped with one of two different types of pins holding the links in place. One type is a simple, nail-shaped pushpin that's inserted into the joint between two links. The second is a flat, L-shaped piece of metal that slides into the center of a link and locks it into place. Both pins are removed using the same process. If the nail-shaped pushpin is present, you'll see the tiny screw heads in the joints. If the L-shaped pin is present, the links will be open-sided and you'll be able to see a strip of metal inserted in each links.
2-
Look for the arrows on the inside of the watch bracelet links. The arrows indicate the direction the pins and links need to be slid off of the band. Any attempt to go against the arrows could break or warp the links.
3-Remove the spring bar from the clasp with the small pin-removal tool. Set the watch up on it's side so that the top of the spring bar is facing up and the bottom is flush against the table. Put moderate pressure on the top of the spring bar and tilt the watch just a bit sideways so that the spring bar can slide out. Ease out the bar slowly and carefully; the spring bar is spring-loaded and will shoot away from the watch if you're not careful (make sure that the bottom of the watch is pointed away from you at all times). Put the spring bar in a small dish so it doesn't get lost.
4-Line up a small pin-removal tool with the top of the pin and push in the direction of the arrow until it slides out completely. Slide off the link. Place the pin and the link in the small dish. You'll want to save them in case the watch needs to be re-sized again at a later date. Continue removing links, alternating sides of the band to keep it even, until the watch reaches the desired size.
5-Reconnect the watch. On the side opposite where the spring bar was removed, line up the link connected to the clasp and the second link on the band. Slide the pin in the opposite direction of the arrow, using a flat-headed pin inserter to push it into the joint. Use the pin-removal tool to give it a final push, listening for the click.
6-
Reinsert the spring bar slowly, using the pin inserter. Make sure the spring bar is lined up and tightly in place to avoid injury.
Try this and it you cant manage it then you need to get it to a watch repair shop specializing in that brand.

I want to shorten my watch band on my new Casio MTG900DA-8WC It has a metal band


Hi,
In order to remove the links of your Mtg930 watch you will need a couple of tools . It is recommended to have a watch pin pusher and a spring bar remover tool in order to do so. If you do not you can use a small precision flat head screw driver , the size that is usually used to fix glasses or smaller.

First you need to lay a cloth down at a table . Lay the watch on top of cloth to prevent scratching . flip the watch upside down and have a good at the back of the watch bracelet.

If you look carefully you are going to see notches on the back of each link with an arrow pointing in. This is where the spring bars are accessible and can be pushed in to remove the link.

You need to place your spring bar remover, pin pusher or precision screw drive in the notch against the edge.

Mean while push the opposite side of the watch link up so you can see the most of the spring bar inside the notch.

The spring bar is going to look like a pink with a notch on the the top then gets smaller. As shown below on the left side of the picture. If you are looking at the notch on the spring bar, that is where you need to get our tool ontop of . So you can push down the spring bar.

Once you push down on that notch on the spring bar the link will be able to slip out . Without a spring bar remover it will be more difficult and you will need to be patient as you try to work your flat head screw driver into the notch and be able to push down . Once the pin is push down you need to pull the link from the rest of the bracelet.

Do not be surprised to take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes if you have no experience and not have a spring bar remover.

Once you removed all the links you desire , You will need to put the spring bars back into the links and close the watch bracelet up.

The easiest way is to slip spring bar into middle of link. Bring the other end of the bracelet over so it the bottom covers the other link with the spring bar head out. Push the spring bar down with your tool as you slide the links back together.

Link removal


here are the steps SEARCH Watches Jewellery WATCHES JEWELLERY GIFT CENTER FEATURED ITEMS WATCH SPECIALS GIFT CERTIFICATES WHAT'S NEW HOME EN FRANCAIS ORDER TRACKING CURRENCY CONVERTER ABOUT US CONTACT US HELP How to Remove Watch Links The following method outlines how to remove most watch links. If you have any questions, please send us an email at Info@Webjeweller.com 1. Pin Type I 2. Leaf Spring Coupled Type 3.Single Screw Link Type 4.Snap Type 5.Bracelet Sizing Instructions 1. Pin Type I (Tools: Eyeleteer, Staking stand, Hammer or Pliers) Step 1. Set the watchband onto a staking stand or other appropriate holder. Step 2. Use an eyeleteer to push out the watchband connecting pin toward the arrow. If the pin is too tight, use a hammer to lightly tap out the pin. Step 3. Pull out the connecting pin with a pair of pliers. Step 4. The selected link can be disconnected from the adjoining link. 2. Leaf Spring Coupled Type (Tools: Tweezers or Pliers) Step 1. Use a pair of tweezers to push out the leaf spring of the link in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Remove the leaf spring by using a pair of pliers. Step 3. Other types of leaf springs as illustrated above are also used in leaf Spring Coupled Type Watchbands. Step 4. Disconnect the link from its adjoining link. 3.Single Screw Link Type (Tools: 1-mm Screwdriver or Tweezers) Disassembly Step 1. Turn the watch on its side. Firmly grasp the bracelet in the area of the link you wish to remove. Insert the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the slot on the screw head. While applying gentel downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screwdriver counter clockwise to loosen the screw. Continue to turn in a counter clockwise motion until you can feel that the screw is completely free turing. Step 2. Grasp the end of the screw with the tip of a pair of tweezers and remove the screw from the link. Set the screw in a safe place for reassembly. Step 3. Once the screw is removed, the link will come apart. Repeat this for as many links as necessary. If removing an uneven number of links, remove the greater amount of links from the 6:00 side. Assembly Step 1. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. Assemble the link, and turn the bracelet on its side. Insert the screw into the link either with a pair of tweezers or your fingers. The screw will only go into one side of the link. Step 2. With the bracelet still on its side, securely hold the bracelet between your fingers, and place the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the screw slot on the end of the screw. While using gentle downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screw in a clockwise direction until you feel the screw stop and the top of the screw is just below the edge of the edge of the bracelet. Do not apply more than gentle pressure on the screwdriver as it could cause the screwdriver tip to slip off the screw end, which may scratch the side of the bracelet. Step 3. Once the screw is screwed down in the link as fare as it will go, give the screwdriver one final"twist" to securely tighten the screw. Be careful not to use too much force as the screw head could become damaged. 4.Snap Type (Citizen Sizing Tool) Step 1. Remove the link pine in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Grasp the band on either side of the link from which the pin was removed. Apply gentle upward pressure on the side nearest the case, while applying gentle downward pressure on the clasp side of the band. You will feel mechanism disengage. Step 3. While continuing to apply gentle pressure as outlined in the previous step, gently"rock" the band to completely release the mechainism. Step 4. After releasing the mechanism move the clasp side of the bracelet towards the case to dissemble the links. Step 5. Gently pull the links apart. Repeat the procedure for as many links as need removing. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. 5.Bracelet Sizing Instructions (Tools: Citizen Blue Pin Pusher Link Joint Remover II or Tweezers) Link Components 1) Split Pipe -Two pieces, one at each end of the pin. Generally one split pipe will remain attached to pin during sizing. 2) Cylinder Link - Two pieces, one at each side of the bracelet link. 3) Link Pin - Connects link, cylinders and split pipes together. Step 1. Note the engraved arrow on the backside of the bracelet showing the direction in which the link pin should be pushed and lay the bracelet in the cradle as shown above. Align the pin of the pin pusher with the link pin, being careful to centre it. Once centreed?, apply slight pressure until you feel the pin begin to move and then turn fixture upright as shown in illustration . This slight pressure will keep the pin pusher in alignment with the link pin while the tool is being turned upright. Step 2. With the fixture standing in the upright position, apply even pressure to the pin pusher until the pin drops out. Step 3. Using the tweezers, set the pin/split pipe assembly and cylinder aside. If the cylinder comes off of the pin, reassemble the cylinder and pin. The split pipe for the link pin at this outside end is still on the pin and dose not need to be removed. To reassemble pin and cylinder, insert pin into the hole of the cylinder so that the split pipe rests in the recess of the cylinder. Set aside for use during reassembly of the bracelet.
